Elderflower Craft Centre

Elderflower Craft Centre provides a space for you to have fun being creative while trying something new. With its variety of workshops and crafts including Beginner Bonsai, Terrariums, Botanical Relief Art, Macrame, Flower Pressing, Propagation and more to come, you’re bound to find something that appeals to you.

Elderflower started as a nursery where the owners could share their love of plants and all things green, and turned into a creative space when they realised, people not only wanted to buy Bonsais or Terrariums or Indoor Plants but wanted to know how to make and grow them themselves.

Here’s some information about some of our most popular upcoming workshops (there will be more dates and venues besides the ones listed so keep an eye on their socials for a workshop near you):

Although the workshops were all originally plant themed (and mostly still are) the team at Elderflower Craft Centre know that there are so many creatives and artisans around Cape Town wanting to share their skills. So they have endeavoured to find the best of them to present a wide array of workshops with Resin Art and Pottery workshops on the horizon. The best place to keep up to date with upcoming workshops is on their social media.
